Ontario students can apply to get 30 per cent off the cost of their tuition.
To help keep the cost of postsecondary education affordable the government is taking 30% off the average tuition for families -- that means $800 for undergraduate university or college degree students and $365 for college diploma and certificate students this semester. 
This September the permanent 30% Off Ontario Tuition grant will apply to the full school year.  Students in a university or college degree program will save $1,600, while students in college diploma and certificate programs will save $730.
More than 300,000 undergraduate students are eligible to receive the new grant this year. Students who already receive OSAP will be automatically considered.
Because the grant is calculated to be 30% off the average Ontario tuition, the amount of the grant will keep pace with any increased future costs -- meaning it will always be 30 per cent off the price of tuition.
Helping Ontario students with the price of tuition is part of the McGuinty government's plan to keep postsecondary education within all families' reach, while building the best-educated workforce in the world.  That leads to a stronger economy, and creates good jobs.
  • Students must be less than four years out of high school and their parents' gross income must be $160,000 or less to qualify for the grant.
  • Students with disabilities may receive the grant for up to six years of study.
  • To fully offset the costs of the new tuition grant, efficiencies and savings were found including: the elimination of the Ontario Textbook and Technology Grant, as well as the Ontario Trust for Student Support and the phase-out of the Queen Elizabeth II Aiming for the Top Scholarships.
  • Ontario has created 200,000 additional postsecondary and apprenticeship spaces and, by re-instating student access grants, has tripled the number of grants available to students since 2003.
